This one:

We are talking about /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions from rc-scripts, right?
Yes, such assumption is true - we can rely on this file and take it for
granted. We do not support rc-scripts-less systems AFAIK, even
systemd-driven in future (if net-scripts or sth separates) must ship
functions file.

Changing 'exec synergyc --daemon' to 'synergyc --daemon [...] &' seems
absolutely wrong too, especially when hidden in commit log:
"- do not use exit in xinitrc, use return instead"
